Perfumer Fanny Ball

As a perfumer at International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF), a world leader in the fragrance industry, Fanny Bal has built an impressive career. Born in France and raised with a love for perfume, she decided to pursue her passion by studying at the prestigious ISIPCA (Institut Supérieur International de la Parfumerie, de la Cosmétique et de l'Aromatique Alimentaire) in Versailles, France, where she further sharpened her skills in the composition of scents.

After completing her studies, Bal started her career as a junior perfumer at IFF, where she quickly gained recognition for her talent. She was mentored by legendary perfumer Dominique Ropion, who helped her refine her craft. In 2011, Fanny Bal, then a student at a perfume school, sought advice from Dominique Ropion, a master perfumer, about a perfume she was creating as part of her studies. Ropion offered her the opportunity to come and smell raw materials every evening after her lessons. What started as a momentary interaction quickly turned into a spontaneous training cycle. According to her biography, Ropion's training with Bal led to the development of a new learning method for the perfume company International Flavors and Fragrances.

“'We started from scratch, and I immediately understood that this work was a school of modesty,' Bal recalled her training with Ropion. Describing the essential skills she learned from him, she said, 'I learned de rigueur and precision to dose the ingredients one by one. The art of writing short formulas where each ingredient must be fully justified, which is precisely what gives character to a perfume.'"

Bal's breakthrough came when she was invited to create fragrances for Frederic Malle, the niche perfume brand known for its high quality and unique fragrances. She composed several fragrances for the brand, including the popular Eau de Magnolia and Promise. Her work for Frederic Malle established her as an emerging star in the industry and led to collaborations with other notable brands such as Masque Milano and Les Bains Guerbois.

In her work, Bal is known for her ability to mix unexpected ingredients and create complex, multi-layered scents. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources including art, nature and personal experiences, she strives to create beautiful and meaningful fragrances.
